SELWYN TIMES Tuesday July 5 2016 7 News Mud, sweat and smiles • By Caitlin Miles KAITLIN de Geest decided part of her half marathon training should involve spending her Sunday covered in mud tackling an obstacle course. It was the first year Rolleston resident Miss de Geest decided to take part in the annual Mud, Sweat and Tears competition at Motukarara raceway. Miss de Geest is currently in the midst of training for a half marathon in November. Her friend Hannah Wentworth convinced her that competing in the 5km obstacle course was just the way to break up her current training schedule. “She said we should do it and I thought that would be a good step up in training and be a bit of fun,” Miss de Geest said. The course involved running, crawling and manoeuvring through obstacles, participants could either compete in the 5km or the 10km course. The pair dressed up as 80s fitness freaks because Miss de Geest ‘couldn’t imagine doing the course in a onesie’ or anything else hard to move in. When it came time to start the race she said she could not think too much about what she was MUDDY: Hannah Wentworth and Kaitlin de Geest (right) finished the competition how they intended to, covered in mud. about to do. didn’t bother her because it “ I just couldn’t think too wasn’t about placing. much about what I was doing, “It was just a really fun, social from the first obstacle you just event, there were lots of people got covered in mud and kept going,” she said. she said. and it was just a really fun day,” Miss de Geest did not get a Miss de Geest said she will placing and was not sure of her definitely compete again next time either but she said that year. Skate park bid for Springfield • By Siobhan Watson A SPRINGFIELD boy pushing for a skate park has received a positive reaction from the township committee and community board. Darfield High School student Cohen Earl, 12, proposed the idea at a recent Springfield Township Committee meeting and he said he got a good response. ‘‘They said they’d bring a guy out to show me some prices and some plans,’’ he said. The skate park would provide children and teenagers in the area with a place to ride on their scooters and skateboards. ‘‘At the moment they ride round in the hall car park and a lot of tourists come through pulling in to go to the toilets and it’s a health and safety issue,” Cohen said. He had collected three pages of signatures from people in the community to support his proposal. Malvern Community Board chairwoman Jenny Gallagher said the board thought the skate park was a great idea and would be keen to support the proposal. “It’s just something for the kids to do. We have got to look at places to put it and designs and things like that but at least he has taken the initiative and put some work in to see if it’s possible, which I think is great from a young lad.” She hadn’t yet considered the possibility that a skate park might be opposed by nearby residents – something which proved an obstacle in establishing skate parks in Prebbleton and Lincoln in recent years. In those cases, residents were concerned that it could increase crime in the area. “I think people would be more than happy to have something that the kids can do rather than complain. If we have got something for them to do it will keep vandalism and things down but if there are issues like that we would certainly work with those that are complaining to see if there is anything we can do.” A spokeswoman for the Springfield Township Committee said it would decide whether to support the proposal at its monthly meeting today.
